Response to the Smart State Council Report; Smart Cities: Rethinking the City

Kennedy, Rosemary J. (2007) Response to the Smart State Council Report; Smart Cities: Rethinking the City. (Unpublished)


The Centre for Subtropical Design (the Centre) is pleased to provide comment to the Department of Infrastructure regarding the recently released Smart State Council Report, Smart Cities: Rethinking the City Centre. As a report originally devised to deal with sustainable cities and regions, it is not so much about factors affecting urban growth, as it is a critique of recent approaches to responding to and managing growth locally and elsewhere is Australia, and internationally. The stated purpose of the report is to "explore ways for Brisbane to be seen and experienced as the captial of the smart state - a city which both attracts creative, innovative people and inspires its existing residents" and its aim is "to purpose a series of initiatives, studies and scenarious that will enable the City Centre to function more smartly".
